  1. Why is there a blackout on matchday live? I paid, its not on tv, and i can’t friggin watch it on my service!

  2. Vermes’ lineup is awful once again…Stojcev on the right, Julio Cesar in midfield, Chance Myers on the field!!!

  3. lol he’s serious. She took a heel right to the taint. She acted like she was going to die from the pain. She came back in 5 minutes later, and at the end of extra time assisted on Japan’s GW goal.

  4. or it could be sardonic humour highlighting the fact that by comparison all of the japanese playes looked minature next to the germans. (which as it turns out didn’t matter because they held the ball and passed with decent skill and thus won the game).

    but please get super serious and superiour about what is obviously a flippantly humours comment. your defence of the honour of the japanse women’s team will be duly noted and your “super-sensitive swell guy” cred will surely grow! yeah you!

  5. Yes you can comment on both, but as you have not done so….

    Also, this whole Japanese team has been playing excellent if you have not noticed. But please, make these games about how hot the women are!

  6. wow. i think your string might be showing a bit. you can also comment on the attractiveness AND the skill … wow imagine that.

    and let’s be honest. a handful of players aside womens soccer is pretty mediocre to watch. this WWC has been no exception. fairly slow, fairly mediocre, lots of turning the ball over and passes to nowhere and inept finishing. it is hardly the paragon of football. of course there have been a few brilliant plays and a handful of brilliant players but let’s not act like saying that the attractiveness of the women playing is an equally enjoyable aspect to the moderately skilled level of play on display is some heinous crime.

  7. Yes, lets not comment on the excellent skill on display and instead comment on how the players look! Equally annoying when the same is done during the men’s games.

  8. midgets 1, hot bavarians 0

    finding attractive women attractive is hardly misogyny … unless of course you are hyper-pc fool.
